Sponsorship Opportunities

Connect with families, children and community organizations through this popular event at Kauffman Stadium. Reach out to your own target market as they run on the field at Kauffman Stadium and help area children at the same time.

Based on your level of sponsorship, your company will:

  • Help children and the military in the Kansas City area. Royals Charities focuses its giving on organizations that support children, education, youth baseball/softball or the military. Your company's sponsorship helps us donate more than $1 million back into the Kansas City nonprofit community each year. Without the support of our corporate and charity partners, Royals Charities couldn't make such a strong local impact.
  • Receive high visibility before the event and on race day
  • Reach a targeted market of more than 3,500 on race day -- and tens of thousands more -- through event day media coverage
  • Build employee morale and company pride
  • Retain and increase customer loyalty
